Will change camps and will be on a diet to keep a strawweight. The move to Nevada was after a call from the UFC.

From Google Translate;

Crashing the weight of the female straw weight (52.6kg) has been a problem for Mackenzie Dern. During UFC Rio in May of this year, the fighter was 3.2kg over the limit of the category. In an interview with the site Combate.com, the American said it will remain in the division.

"After I did not hit the weight, the UFC called me. They said they were thinking of moving me, they called me to go to the Performance Institute in Las Vegas to see what my body type was like, whether it was better to continue with the weight of the straw or rise to flyweight, "Dern said.

UFC president Dana White expressed his displeasure at recent weight difficulties. He is irreducible in the idea of ??changing the weighing format to the old format.

Mackenzie explained that she does not own a body for a straw-weight athlete, but will keep on dieting and training so she can continue in the category. "Everyone here agrees that I have a body type that fits in the weight of straw, in the category that I am, so the plan is to continue in it. But we want to diet and train so I do not have to cut as much weight, I'll cut very little. After the fight, I will not go up much, "he concluded.

Mackenzie Dern switched from jiu-jitsu to MMA in 2016 when he made his debut in Legacy FC with a win over Kenya Roses. The UFC has been hired by the UFC this year and has already held two fights and two triumphs. His cartel is seven fights and is unbeaten.

LOL!

Seriously?

Zuffa is going to try and pull a Ngannou and make Dern marketable because they need marketable fighters.

Not sure it will work.

Rhymenoceros - Where's the part about changing camps?

Well if she’s living in Vegas, it’s hard for her to train every day in CA. My guess is she is using the UFC PI and Xtreme Couture as it seems like most of the fighters who utilize the UFC facility train at XC also, especially the girls.

For the dumb dumbs:

The article says the UFC is thinking of moving her up a weight class, and asked her to come to Vegas so they could assess her body type and make a decision.

There is literally nothing there about her changing camps or moving permanently to Vegas.
